It may be concluded that post-bleaching fluoride application may be beneficial in reducing the risk of demineralization caused by acid attack after bleaching processes and to remineralize the bleached enamel surfaces. In addition, TiF4-treated samples released less Ca2+ than NaF-treated samples, which indicates that TiF4 may be more effective than NaF in preventing damage from acid attack.
